220210: Galerie Area 53 DOUBLE – VOLLEY

Galerie Area 53 DOUBLE – VOLLEY 22.01.10 – until 27.02.10 Back and forth It may not be a new idea that artists present their work in group exhibitions without having been selected by curators. But the idea was somewhat extended by the Area 53: the gallery managers Mounty R.P. Zentara and Karin Sulimma invited their colleague Michaela Stock to jointly present four positions at the gallery. With reference to the sport in which the ball is not allowed to touch the ground, the project was named “Double Volley”. Michaela Stock sent Christiane Spatt into the race, presenting childhood photos with a collage of toys and cuddly toys; Sabine Groschup, shown as a video projection on a stone, commands everyone to get out of her way; Michael Nitsche, whose figures created of bones and marbles are equally disturbing as his surreal drawings; and Patrick Baumüller, who lets a neon-yellow coloured rope circle around the room. This installation catches Mounty R.P. Zentara’s series “Black”: the earth, seen from outer space: a prolific combination, presented through the rotational moment of both works. In addition to presenting himself, Zentara also nominated Bruno Rey with sculptural-architectural drawings of shirts and a sculpture of a radiator, and Gabriele Cram with an installation focussing on a notebook with a story, and Ekaterina Shapiro-Obermair with a black-and-white geometrical work on paper, blended with photos depicting cities in the former Soviet Union. One could, similar to the rotation, identify the collage as one of the exhibition’s main themes. Apart from that, the works do not have much in common. In any case, their charm mainly consists of the nonchalant back and forth between the art worlds.
